AARP Michigan's 2013 Legislative Agenda


Lisa portrait


 AARP Michigan advocates on policy issues that matter most to Michigan residents age 50 and over and their families.

These issues include economic security; access to quality, affordable health care; and age-friendly communities in which to live.

In our state legislative advocacy efforts, AARP relies on more than 200 AARP Michigan volunteers, a state office staff located in Lansing, and our 1.4 million Michigan members.

Lisa Dedden Cooper, Advocacy Manager for AARP Michigan, noted that our 2013 state legislative priorities include:

-- Age-Friendly Communities

-- Fighting the Erosion of Retirement Security

-- Medicaid Expansion

-- Employment and Entrepreneurship

-- Home and Community-Based Long-Term Services

-- Implementing Michigan's Health Insurance Exchange

-- APRN Scope of Practice

-- Retired Nurse Volunteer Licensure

-- Preventing Elder Abuse and Exploitation

-- Fighting Medigap Rate Increases

-- Uniform Guradianship Jurisdiction Act

-- Integrated Care for 'Dual Eligibles'
